|Code4Lib 2007: Intellectual Property Disclosure - Code4Lib.org|
Michael Doran presenting. This presentation will cover the copyright issues and pitfalls that arise when a locally created software application is being considered for release under an open-source license. It will be based on the knowledge and experience gained shepherding two applications through the intellectual property disclosure process at the University of Texas at Arlington, so that the applications could be officially released as open source.

|Code4Lib 2007: The XQuery Expose - Code4Lib.org|
Kevin Clarke presenting. Princeton University has developed their current digital collections architecture around a native XML database and the XQuery programming language. This presentation will look at XQuery's strengths and weaknesses within the context of our current development environment as well as mention other environments in which an XQuery framework would (or, perhaps, wouldn't) work. What is XQuery? Why would one want to use it? Doesn't it do the same thing as XSLT? How does fulltext...

|Code4Lib 2007: Smart Subjects - Code4Lib.org|
Tito Sierra presenting. The Smart Subjects tool attempts to increase broader user discovery of relevant library resources by serendipitously recommending library subjects related to a user's search query. The prototype tool uses large locally created subject indexes consisting of rich topical keyword content harvested from local sources. An OpenSearch interface allows this recommendation service to be integrated flexibly and easily in a variety of web applications.

|Code4Lib 2007: LibraryFind - Code4Lib.org|
Terry Reese presenting. Over the past 1/2 year, Oregon State University (OSU) Libraries have been actively developing a hybrid federated search service called LibraryFind. We believe that our approach is unique in a number of ways (knowledge-base management, caching, OpenURL integration). OSU believes LibraryFind has something to contribute to the library community, and I’d like to show attendees what LibraryFind is, some things we learned through usability studies and how they can get the sof...

|Code4Lib 2007: Forget The Lipstick, This Pig Just Needs Social Skills - Code4Lib.org|
Fabien Tiburce, Peter Giansante presenting. Various (discrete and disparate) library systems have experimented with incorporating community-contributed content. Yet, as we are seeing, few systems, if any can gather a sufficient volume of contributed data to achieve critical mass and have a meaningfully presence in the OPAC. However, if this content was aggregated across jurisdictions (using a small footprint web-service model and centralized database), libraries could play a central role in the ...

|Code4Lib 2007: Free The Data - Code4lib.org|
Emily Lynema presenting. NCSU Libraries’ initial implementation of its Endeca-powered catalog did little to utilize increased flexibility to create more interoperability. This talk would discuss current work to enable integration by creating a web services platform on top of the catalog. Examples include a web service supplying local availability for ISBN REST requests, an RSS layer for all catalog search/browse activities, and OpenSearch integration with the library website’s Quick Search (...

|Code4Lib 2007: ZeroConfMetaOpenSearch - Code4Lib.org|
Dan Chudnov presenting. What if we could share our libraries like we can share music in iTunes? Maybe we can. Maybe a little ZeroConf and OpenSearch added to existing library systems like metasearch and service resolvers can help make it happen faster, easier, and cheaper than you might think. Or two of those, at least.

|Code4Lib 2007: The BibApp - Code4Lib.org|
Eric Larson, Nate Vack presenting. What has your repository done for you lately? The Rails-powered BibApp is the ultimate mashup of article databases, citation management software, and digital repositories. To date, it's helped us add over 2000 articles to our repository by organizing citations, identifying articles we can archive, and generating DSpace import packages. It also lets us analyze research produced on campus, illustrating popular research topics, departmental affiliations, and colla...

|Code4Lib 2008: Finding Relationships in MARC, Rob Styles - Code4Lib.org|
I've been doing a lot of work around extracting as much meaning as possible from Marc records, using RDF as the data structure. Marc is a record-centric format, the result is anything but, with the RDF allowing rich relationships to form in the data that can then be used to drive different navigation techniques. This is about making the most of what is in Marc data to do something new.

Joan Starr presenting. Academic digital libraries face serious challenges in trying to adopt agile project management techniques. While there have always been significant differences between how an academic and a corporate team might solve a problem, today, digital library and corporate offerings are often in direct competition.

Andrew Nagy presenting. Villanova University’s Falvey Memorial Library has longed for a beautiful pig; however, we determined in early 2006 that pigs were only good at searching for truffles, so we decided to build our own OPAC. After developing our own custom Digital Library from a Native XML Database, we quickly appreciated the ease of development with XQuery and XSLT. We then launched full speed ahead into the development of a new OPAC from scratch using XML technologies and MARCXML...

How to monitor, in near-real-time, usage of all the great services we build and offer?

Building on Galen Charlton's investigations into distributed version control systems for metadata management, I was going to offer a prototype system for managing archival finding aids in EAD (Encoded Archival Description). My prototype relied on distributed version control and uses post-commit hooks to initiate indexing and publishing processes. However, I ran into some serious barriers in my implementation, and my talk will focus on the fundamental problem of algorithmically diffing and expres...
